05:04<azeem_>shaggy_: which version of grub-common?
05:05<shaggy_>azeem_: 1.98-1
05:05<azeem_>just because something says it's being replaced by something else doesn't mean *all* files are in the new package
05:06<azeem_>it just means *at least one* file is also in the other package
05:06<ucenik14>ko si ti bre\
05:06<shaggy_>is there a meta package for grub ?
05:06<shaggy_>i have grub-common and grub-pc is not installable?
05:07<azeem_>why is grub-pc not installable?
05:07<shaggy_>azeem: Package grub-pc is not available, but is referred to by another package.
05:07<shaggy_>azeem: replaced by etc..
05:08-!-icebrain [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:09<azeem_>shaggy_: what version of Debian are you running?
05:09<shaggy_>azeem: what package is supposed to have the binary / script update-grub in it?
05:09<shaggy_>azeem: sid
05:09<shaggy_>aww? broken repo list?
05:09<azeem_>shaggy_: well if you run sid, you're supposed to fix this yourself anyway
05:09<azeem_>and not ask here
05:10<shaggy_>azeem: i kind of understand linux in training for sys admin... want to learn....
05:10<jm_>it looks like it depends on older version of grub-common
05:10<azeem_>shaggy_: then use stable
05:11<jm_>or not, it's showing older version of it
05:11-!-babilen [] has joined #debian
05:11<jm_>anyway check its dependencies
05:11<shaggy_>azeem: can't do that i love beta software. i do a decent job of fixing it

05:24<shaggy_>would it be a good idea to download grub-pc package and install manually?
05:24<jm_>why was it removed in the first place?
05:25<shaggy_>jm_: i dont know ? i didn't remove it? i update nightly. today i got a kernel upgrade and post init fails with update-grub. i check for executable not there ...
05:26<jm_>shaggy_: you should pay more attention to what is going on with upgrades
05:26<jm_>you're definitely not suitable to use unstable branch
05:26<shaggy_>jm_: what did i miss?
05:26<jm_>shaggy_: the reason why it removed grub-pc
05:27<shaggy_>would that have been listed under packages to be removed?
05:28<jm_>don't think so, but when it says it will remove something you can run aptitude why-not foo
05:28<shaggy_>jm_ ... :( i have been running debian unstable for a least a couple of monthes... i learning a good deal... which was the goal? i mean i didn't come here with OMG update fails?
05:29<jm_>shaggy_: yes, but you should not use it if you can't fix siutations like this, or investigate it properly

06:20<blueglasses>isn't sudo installed by default on debian server edition?
06:20<babilen>pkkm: Haven't read the tutorial, but you probably want to either (i) let your MTA receive mail delivered to your host or (ii) use getmail/fetchmail to fetch them from your ISP
06:20<pkkm>babilen, lenny
06:20<petemc>blueglasses: there is no server edition

06:57<knoppix_user018>about debian 6: I tested KUBuntu 9.10 live CD and kaffeine was hopelessly broken. As I understand, there does not exist a version on kaffeine which works properly AND is compatible with KDE4. So, are you debian distro developers a) revert yout decision and make it with KDE 3.5 b) offer broken kaffeine or c) wait until the kaffeinen team can get out a version that works properly with KDE 4?

I need some funcionalities (in order of importance). 1. Be able to handle multiple distributions/releases/versions on same server (mandatory) . 2. Easy browseable strucuture (allowing me to share as a repository) (desired). 3. Seamless client configuration (as http_proxy or
07:50<Lin> apt::proxy) (optional).

10:16<michi7x7>actually, iceweasel IS firefox...

10:17<babilen>!why iceweasel
10:17<dpkg>Due to Mozilla logos licensing, Mozilla software isn't DFSG-free, so Debian distributes Mozilla software with different logos.

10:19<rpetre>debian-specific, as there are in countless other programs packaged in debian
10:19<babilen>anyway - firefox is not supported in here. Go to #firefox / #mozilla if you need support for it

12:25<Hydroxide>boolean: squeeze is currently planned to release with 2.6.32, with a few bits backported from newer stuff, in approximate synchronization with Ubuntu Lucid and RHEL 6. linux-next is entirely unrelated to squeeze, and has no direct relation to debian besides having an indirect influence on future Debian kernels post-squeeze

13:32<rg>hi there, little question. i've installed a fresh lenny, i've had it before, the problem: with lenny repositories i havent the latest packages (stable packages), so can i put testing repositories on sources.list?
13:33<rg>would be that a problem?
13:33-!-mode/#debian [-q *!*@] by ChanServ
13:33<dkr>!tell rg about backports
13:33<kop>rg: Not in a simple fashion. You would then update to testing and be running testing, not stable.
13:33<khades>stable and latest are different tings
13:33<bja>rg: you would go to "inbetween releasees hell" not a nice place to be
13:33<Solver>dkr: took the words right out of mouth :)

13:34<Solver>rg: I'd recommend to using testing repos
13:34<sney>it's sometimes runnable but not recommended. ymmv.
13:34-!-drewdavis [~drewdavis@] has joined #debian
13:34<sney>and yes, backports has a lot of newer stuff.
13:34<khades>not so lot
13:34<khades>wish there were more
13:34<rg>gonna check backports
13:36<khades>rg: what fresh soft do u need?
13:36<rg>network applet
13:36<rg>can i find that on backports?

15:45<sney>shaggy_: not that I'm aware of, but all mailing list posts are archived online.

15:45<dpkg>Your distribution may be based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it probably falls short of Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian.

Even if your distribution has fewer people in its IRC channel, or doesn't have one, support for distributions other than Debian is off-topic on #debian.

23:16<adb>and use the kqemu with ?
23:17<twb>I don't use kqemu or kvm.
23:17<twb>I *would* use kvm, if the idiot sysadmin hadn't stolen the VT-capable host to run bloody rppppoe.
23:18<sney>point to point to point protocol?
23:19<twb>3GHz quad-core being used to perform ADSL authentication and nothing else >:-/
23:19<twb>Oh, sorry, yeah. Typo.
23:20<sney>lol I'm just messing with you
23:20<sney>but yeah, sysadmin types love to claim the new hardware so they can use it for ...other things as well
23:20<twb>No, he did it because he's an idiot.
23:20<sney>'top' on that server would probably not only report auth calls
23:20<twb>And manglement won't let me take the machine back because it'll cause downtime
23:21<sney>well, I would have claimed it to run ctorrent.
23:21<ml|>rtorrent ;)
23:21<twb>Well, technically, FSVO idiot = it was easier to steal someone else's box than to go through purchasing
23:21<twb>sney: rtorrent runs on his workstation
23:22<sney>ah oh well
23:22<twb>Even if you're using bittorrent for evil, that just requires an extra DNAT or so.
23:24<twb>I haven't done it lately because bittorrent makes the assumption that I like what other people like.
23:24<sney>we used to put hardware upgrades through on office supply POs, though that sort of thing might not fly in a smaller workplace

23:54<cesurasean>why it would be called e, then?
23:54<twb>Presumably because it's following policy and encoding the soname in the binary name.
